2012 musings

The Mayan calendar, the Hopi prophecies, Nostradamus, Aleister Crowley . . . well,  forget about it.  2012 is not the end of the world.  In fact, this world will be around long after we are all gone, probably inhabited by viruses and cockroaches.

However, December 20, 2012 is a magical date in many occult systems.  It is symmetrical, being 12/20/2012.

Nostradamus did not predict this year as the end of the world.  The Mayan elders say that it is simply the end of an age, not the end of the world.  The Hopi expecting a huge natural disaster, but not the end of the world or of humanity.

I expect the Illuminati or a terrorist group (same thing, in my opinion) to attempt something major.

The ancients told us about cycles of time, based primarily on astronomical observations.  For example,  the planet Mars used to pass close to the Earth and wreak havoc.  However, Mars has settled down into a more stable orbit now and no longer presents a threat to our survival.

The planet Nibiru, which features prominently in the work of Zechariah Sitchin, is really Mars.  The ancients were terrified of Mars.  Emmanuel Velikovsky was much closer to the truth when he told us that both Venus and Mars used to pass close to the Earth.

The ancients possessed a high technology, perhaps higher than our own, but it was destroyed in what the Hindu Vedas describe as a war involving aircraft, particle beam weapons and atomic bombs.

I explore these and other ways in which the ancients informed us of their history in my book 2012 and Beyond: Ancient Secrets and Mysteries.
